Call for Speakers is now closed.
The conference is seeking proposals from Customers, IBM Business Partners and IBM employees for the following programs:
Information Management, Enterprise Content Management and Business Analytics
Encompasses technical sessions about products, solutions, and client implementations. These sessions target IT professionals including database and content administrators, IT architects, developers and programmers.
Includes business oriented sessions, offering industry focused thought leadership and innovative ideas. These sessions target senior decision makers in Line of Business and IT management roles.
Sessions will be selected in mid-June.
In exchange for your participation as a speaker, customers and Business Partners who are selected to deliver a conference elective session may be eligible to receive a conference registration waiver valued at up to USD $2,195. Only one waiver per session is available for a non-IBM speaker per session. A conference registration waiver will be offered to the speaker if IBM determines, after legal review of applicable laws, that it is appropriate. Speakers must deliver their session at the conference to be eligible for the waiver. This waiver is given to the speaker and not aligned with the session. For example, if a customer or Business Partner is speaking in two sessions, the single waiver covers both sessions. Speakers in Birds of a Feather, Expert Exchange, EXPO Theater and Panel Discussion sessions do not qualify for the waiver. The waiver is not transferable. We will inform the speaker about the waiver status and any other documentation that may be required. The conference registration waiver allows admission to all conference meals, education sessions, EXPO, networking events and programs Sunday evening through Thursday. No travel or living expense reimbursement will be offered. If both a customer and Business Partner are speaking in a session, the customer will receive the waiver.
